Twitter’s Own Guide for Small Business

Filed in Social Media by Matt McGee on July 23, 2009 6 Comments

You’ve probably read several Twitter guides for small business, but you’ve never read one that came from straight from Twitter itself. You can now. Twitter has published a phenomenally good tutorial that any business, small or big, can use to learn how best to use Twitter for marketing and growing your business. Here it is:

Twitter 101

The guide includes some really good advice: listen first, start slowly, set goals, create an informative profile, be interesting to your followers, build relationships, provide value to the community, don’t spam. There are simple instructions on how to get started, a glossary of terms, and so much more. Save it, bookmark it, refer to it often. It’s that good.

    Thanks for being quick on this. I was very skeptical of twitter as it started. Being from Idaho there are not many tweets, but today I carried on a conversation with a congressmen for the state. We are going to set up a time to go golfing now. That is the power of twitter. I couldn’t have done it any other way. Small business owners..get ready…you will tweet, tweet, tweet all the way home.

  2. I think it is important for small businesses to really test the waters with Twitter before they get real comfortable and find a strategy that works long term.

  3. Thanks for useful info! Twitter is not easy to use as a marketing tool and this guide really has has some great hints for begginers.

    I’m glad I found this – just like you I was collating info for my own small businesses on Twitter guide, but looks like everyone and their dog has beaten me to it!

    I came across this the other day, didn’t have the time to read it so I bookmarked it without knowing it was actually written by the Twitter camp.

    Thanks for sharing.
